Delicious little peanut butter protein balls – all you need to do is mix, roll and chill. A simple snack, guaranteed to hold you over till meal time!
A super easy, quick recipe for you today! After Thanksgiving, and before the Christmas craziness starts (or has it already?) I wanted an easy way to get some protein in, while not having to stop what I’m doing to do it. I like eating them mid-morning to hold me over til lunch.
Yep, they’re rolled in graham cracker crumbs – you can skip this if you want to, but I love it!Love this? Tweet it!Click To Tweet
These aren’t just great for ME – I’m packing lunches these days and since it gets just as boring PACKING the same old stuff as it does EATING it, I thought I’d do something a little different.
I make these while my boys are in school, and serve them as an after school snack as well. Why is it that kids come home from school ravenous? I KNOW they eat at school! These peanut butter balls are my secret weapon. Pick them up from school, and throw each of the beasts a baggie containing these. Seems to buy me at least an hour before the whining about when dinner will be begins.
They’re great motivators for doing homework, too. Even better – these are no-cook!
